Rally the troops!

The only long weekend I am going to have is a long weekend of writing! I just got a freelance gig, which is fabulous!! And I have an enormous amount of work to do for my screenwriting course...and I am about to start an advanced novel writing workshop for my second novel. My novel page count isn't where I want it to be yet, and so this weekend I am getting myself up early and shooting for 3-5 pages a day until Wednesday!

It will be hard to do as I am at that point in my novel where I can see where I am going in the long run, but in the short run, there are gaps...huge gaps that need to be sorted through. Alas that's where the troops come in! As you can see they are all there on my desk, along with a now empty tin of chocolate covered espresso beans, a large iced coffee and this gorgeous new addition...a hand blown glass vase that was a gift from my friends Greg & Shin and is a ray of sunshine on even the dreariest of days! I love this vase, it has layers upon layers, and reminds me that this is what my story should be like, and in it I put a note that arrived from my mom with flowers one week that says simply..."You can do it."

And I can, and with all these lovely treasures from friends and a hefty dose of caffeine...I will.
